The meaning here is: With a static clocksource structure, the "ctx" field will
be initialized, so it will not allow a second instance of the driver to be
loaded (in case of incorrect DTS or something similar).

So. this example is just a single instance protector :)
I will review the code to understand how to make it easier.
